[Ed. – How can they tell?]
Colonel Sanders is now assembling a robot army — programmed to serve fried chicken.
At a high-tech new KFC restuarant in Shanghai, customers can order food via a voice-activated robot named “Dumi”.
And the automaton is even sophisticated enough to handle order changes as well as substitutions – but sadly it can’t quite manage the English language yet.
Dumi is the culmination of ten years of research and development into artificial intelligence by Baidu – a Chinese web services company. The robot is said to appear soon in other real-world environments, although Baidu has not provided any specific details.
